I reset my ASA to Factory Defaults and compaired the "sh ru" to a new ASA.
The folowing is included on the one I reset.  How do I get rid of these entries?

class-map inspection_default
 match default-inspection-traffic
policy-map type inspect dns preset_dns_map
  message-length maximum 512
policy-map global_policy
 class inspection_default
  inspect dns preset_dns_map
  inspect ftp
  inspect h323 h225
  inspect h323 ras
  inspect rsh
  inspect rtsp
  inspect esmtp
  inspect sqlnet
  inspect skinny
  inspect sunrpc
  inspect xdmcp
  inspect sip
  inspect netbios
  inspect tftp
service-policy global_policy global

Open in new window

Watch Question

Why do you want to get rid of them? these commands control basic firewall function. you can take them out by "clear config policy-map".


Just did not see them in a running config on a new ASA.

Wasn't sure if it was something left over from a previous configration.

My enable password did not change so I wasn't sure
it is part of the factory setting.
As all the others say its a part of the factory defaults.

You can always negate them the with "no"

no service-policy global_policy global
no policy-map global_policy
no policy-map type inspect dns preset_dns_map
no class-map inspection_default
